This enchanting children's book for art lovers both young and old uses an imaginative tale from the life of Yves Klein to explain how his very unusual works came about.
Keenly interested in everything new and free of preconceived notions, children are the ideal viewers of art. Yves Klein - Into the blue is a playful introduction to the work of one of the founding fathers of contemporary art. With its deliberately non-pedagogical tone and unusual design, the book is also a perfect "bed-time story" featuring key works by the artist along with original photographs and quotations. In Klein's pictures, children experience a wide range of approaches to painting, from a canvas covered completely with plate gold to a radiant blue sponge to the imprint of a painted woman's body on paper. The story is told in vivid colors and images by Nina Hollein, an architect and the mother of two children. A blue coloring pad in the cover - attached to a bookmarkn - encourages young readers to try out their own ideas on paper. As they color or paint, children explore the many ways there are of making art. (German edition available ISBN 3-7757-1486-3)
